No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Cloud Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new cloud hosting account shall be ensured by the ZFS file system that we work with on our cloud platform. The majority of internet hosting providers, including our firm, use multiple HDDs to store content and considering that the drives work in a RAID, identical data is synchronized between the drives all the time. If a file on a drive becomes corrupted for some reason, yet, it is likely that it will be duplicated on the other drives since alternative file systems do not feature special checks for that. In contrast to them, ZFS applies a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each and every file. If a file gets corrupted, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, and the damaged copy shall be substituted with a good one from a different hard drive. Because this happens instantly, there's no risk for any of your files to ever be corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have avoided any risk of files getting damaged silently since the servers where your semi-dedicated hosting account will be created work with a powerful file system known as ZFS. Its basic advantage over various other file systems is that it uses a unique checksum for each file - a digital fingerprint which is checked in real time. As we save all content on a number of SSD drives, ZFS checks whether the fingerprint of a file on one drive matches the one on the rest of the drives and the one it has stored. In case there's a mismatch, the damaged copy is replaced with a good one from one of the other drives and considering that this happens instantly, there is no chance that a corrupted copy can remain on our hosting servers or that it can be duplicated to the other hard drives in the RAID. None of the other file systems employ this kind of checks and in addition, even during a file system check right after a sudden power failure, none of them will find silently corrupted files. In comparison, ZFS will not crash after a power failure and the regular checksum monitoring makes a time-consuming file system check unneeded.
